December 9, 2020 at 11:46 pmZhuSubscriberMy model is a dissected aorta, where the ascending aorta was replaced by a graft. So my geometry has two parts (Graft and Aorta) and the connection was defined as bonded. I am trying to get the pre-stressed aortic model since the reconstructed geometry was under a diastolic pressure. nFirstly, in Static Structural, I apply a pressure load that equals to diastolic pressure (80 mmHg) and the simulation converged quickly. I exported stresses as text files, which were then imported as inital stress through External Data for another Static Structural analysis. I applied the same boundary conditions toghter with those initial stresses but the solution became unconverged during the first substep as a result of highly distorted mesh. I suppose that the pressure load would counteract with the imported initial stress so there should not be any highly distorted mesh? Anyone suggestions about this would be appreciated a lot!n

December 11, 2020 at 10:15 amZhuSubscriberHi akhemka,nThanks a lot for your reply! I have attached two figures showing my Setup and Analysis Settings. By the way, my mesh was generated in ICEM and imported through the FEM. nI tried to apply only the initial stress without the pressure load but the same error occurred, still in the first substep. Any further suggestions would be appreciated. nYours,nYunn
